i can't stop thinking about you

cigarettes and coffee.
broken hearts and being lonely.
little girls and ponies.
the things that go together.
yes and no. you have to choose.
romeo and juliet. the hangman and his noose.

you and me would go good together.

shake me like a monkey, baby

i'm the opposite of moderate

just live your life

One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. "Which road do I take?" she asked. "Where do you want to go?" was his response. "I don't know," Alice answered. "Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter." - Lewis Carroll

keep your hand in my hand

Kelly Clarkson : I Do Not Hook Up

A friend recommended this song to me. and it's not particularly catchy, but I like the lyrics.

"Of course you’re gonna get your heart broken. And it isn’t just gonna happen once, but a lot. That’s just part of growing up, and it makes you stronger. Then you can handle it better the next time. You may not get through it yourself, but your friends will help you through it. And you’ll be a stronger person because of it. Then, one day, someone will come along, and it’ll all pay off, and no one will ever break your heart again."

(both picture and quote are via : of vice and men)

all the surprises in a size too small

sometimes when things seem terribly wrong or i’m highly offended or life seems to be falling apart, i try to remind myself that “surely this is not the best God has planned for me.” and then i breathe a little bit easier and make a plan to move forward.

worry about nothing. pray about everything.

this love is difficult, but it's real

I'll never understand.

When did it become socially acceptable to ask someone out via text? And really, please tell me, when did it become socially acceptable to tell someone you want them via text? I mean, really? Am I supposed to swoon because you tell me you want me through nonverbal communication? Knock me off my feet, Romeo. Yes, please, take me now. You can't come up to me and tell me in person, but you want me to hook up with you? I don't care how hot you are. That's not gonna fly. I don't think so.

This is what we call a "red flag".

I'm jaded and cynical sometimes. I've had my heart broken a time or two. And I've done it to other people myself. But I still believe in happily ever after. I know I bitch and complain about never getting married, but I would rather wait forever than settle for a text booty call. Maybe I'm just confused because things like this don't ever happen to me. Is this normal?

When did relationships become so "easy" and technological?

What happened to regular dating? To going out and getting know someone? I just want someone to like me and my quirks and to want to spend time with me and to think about me when I'm gone. Someone who likes holding hands and going slow and hanging out at coffee shops and reading books. Someone who loves music and art and wandering. Is that too much to ask?

Maybe. But I can wait if I need to do that. Yep. I can wait.

He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring. He said, marry me, Juliet. You'll never have to be alone. I love you and that's all I really know. I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress. It's a love story. Baby, just say yes.

maybe the sun will shine today

of vice and men:
via unicornology:
yes, when he asks you in for coffee, you should say yes. you should follow him in through the door. you should be polite and funny and a little weird, and he will find it endearing. he will.
maybe i won't feel so afraid. i will try to understand. either way.

the wake up call to a rented room

“Stop talking about love. Every asshole in the world says he loves somebody. It means nothing. It still doesn’t mean anything. What you feel only matters to you. It’s what you do to the people you say you love, that’s what matters. It’s the only thing that counts.” - The Last Kiss

... sounded like an alarm of impending doom to warn us that it's only a matter of time until we all burn.

i just can't get enough

"... The real meaning of eternal life is a life that can face anything it has to face without wavering. If we take this view, life becomes one great romance, a glorious opportunity for seeing marvelous things all the time..." - Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

"We don't have much, but we're happy."

And it's just money anyway, right? Right.

i want to do everything and be everything and i can't.
i'm learning life things. i have new perspective.
one day at a time. i'm sorry if i mess up, but i'm trying.

don't believe those hungry liars

i like new music.
and i like strings. a lot. yep.

we will feel our way through the dark

i have a giant list of things to do.
i'm trying to both keep my new perspective and accomplish it all.
ack. ack. ack.

Everyone wants stuff. We wake up everyday with a list of wishes a mile long and maybe we spend our lives trying to make those wishes come true. But just because we want them doesn’t mean we need them to be happy. - Pushing Daisies

today was a good day. glass half full. yep.

although i have begun to wonder if i should go on vh1's tough love. hmmm. i'm only sort of kidding. mostly kidding. i got time.

ps. today i was genuinely positive and happy. really.

i'll fold every failure into a crane

sometimes i like to change the dots on my page.

that's all.

i don't fall easy at all

songs i (especially) enjoyed today:

vega4 - life is beautiful
coldplay - strawberry swing
the script - the man who can't be moved
the script - breakeven
lisa hannigan - i don't know
sleeping at last - quicksand

I assume that your heart's been bruised. I'd like to know you. You don't know if I can draw at all or what records I am into. If I sleep like a spoon or rarely at all.

we frolicked about in our summer skin

via : i need a place that's hidden deep

it's a valid point.

i don't recall a single care. just greenery and humid air.
